A man fell in a stairwell in St. Louis and was injured. He is now suing the owner of the property in a premises liability lawsuit. He claims that the stairwell was unlit and was not properly marked off with a partition. The fall happened in March.
According to the complaint filed Nov. 1 in St. Clair County Circuit Court, the defendants carelessly and negligently permitted the sidewalk at the entrance of the premises to become and remain in a dangerous condition.
The man is asking for damages over $100,000 to compensate for his injuries, medical expenses and time off work.
